Earlier I put up a video for friends to see, via a link. All but two images were original. This presented one dilemma. The other was the sounds were created by others. In the postmodern age, litigation preceeds art.

The 21st century will need to find out who we are, what our work is, and where boundaries begin and end threateningly. Our work becomes slaves to be litigated over by antiquated copyright laws, which measures itself solely the bottom line.

The photo above shows a poster done for part of a school day festivity. Should we worry that publishers will come after us for copyright violations? Imagine Warhol going to Campbells for permission, Jasper Johns going to Ballantine Beer, etc. . .?
